Campground is very clean. Bathrooms could use some work. Good location. Staff is a little over the top with rules. Not a great interaction with the staff, but otherwise a good stay. Lots are spacious.

I am pretty sure they do have a dump station, however, this park was one of the most RIDICULOUS/RUDE regarding following policies and procedures. Very inflexible!

I think the tent camping price was about $17. You will need a $10 cash deposit for the sign they give you to show that you've registered to camp there. You get the $10 back when you check out.

I believe tent camping was about $17 per night. You need a $10 cash deposit for the sign they give you to put next to your tent to show that you're registered to camp there. You get the $10 back at check out.
